Faith-Based Initiative

Uncle Sam taking taxpayer

No Evangelical Christian Church Left Behind

Pastor John Leland
If pure religion is the criterion to [decide upon] candidates, those who make a noise about it must be rejected; for their wrangle about it proves that they are void of it. Let honesty, talents and quick dispatch characterize the men of your choice.

Baptist pastor John Leland
Independence Day oration 1802

Uncle Sam stay out of religion

Never let government entwine itself with organized religion.  These two massive institutions can barely function separately.  Put them together and you have a combined bureaucracy that will be incapable of serving anyone.
